Re: Bulova conqueror 1926

Pedro - thanks for the vote of confidence. I really don't mind dials with a lot of "character"...I am fortunate to have been collecting Bulovas of this age for awhile and I maintain a pretty good inventory of parts and parts movements. Time and laziness are the main reasons this watch isn't on my wr...

Re: Elgin collection

Welcome...Very nice collection of Elgins. Looks like you are mostly into stuff from the mid-1940s to the 1960s. We like pictures - so no worries about flooding us.

Re: Bulova conqueror 1926

The dial is in tough shape - but it maybe isn't as bad as the crystal makes it seem. Still I am keeping an eye out for a better dial. I have a new glass crystal for it also, and I have a stock of correct hands that I have hoarded. The movement is the 17j version of the 9AT. Thanks for your response ...

Re: The Road Less Traveled By

Nice work GJ...sometimes it ain't about the money. I have a GTO that is coming together the same way - and in the end it will cost me more (probably) - but sometimes these projects are just the right thing to do, and spreading out spending the money spreads out the pain.

Thanks for sharing...

Re: Bulova conqueror 1926

Very nice work....I have one in my project box as well - but it is 1928 so the "Lone Eagle" rather than the Conqueror

Re: Hello, my name is Jamie and I have a (Timex) addiction.

Hey Jamie...That is nothing to be ashamed of...And my project watch box looks way worse than that...

Re: $4.50 - sure I'll pay that...

Thanks Everyone, It was one of my better recent buys...the pictures were bad, but not so bad that I thought to not have much competition. I will show it off when I get it done - I really need to get going the the servicing since my project box is completely out of control. I'm sure nobody else here ...

$4.50 - sure I'll pay that...

Here is my latest bottom feeding effort. In the interest of honesty it really cost me $10.50 after shipping. But, hey - I have paid that for a running 6/0 on occasion. Here it is...the Elgin States 679. 29States679DirtyOview.jpg 29States679DirtyMovement.jpg 29States679DirtyInsideBack.jpg The photos ...
